Descrizione

This is the story of events that actually happened and that you will read later on.
Pietro Pigafetta, a descendant of Antonio Pigafetta, tells this story.
Thanks to documents and memoirs, passed down from generation to generation, I could put together many details of that era and the great journey of Magellan and Pigafetta.
A good part of the story was written in the book, “Primo viaggio intorno al globo terracqueo” (First trip around the globe) by Antonio Pigafetta.
A very important detail, which can be defined as a mystery, is the death of this great navigator.
There are many assumptions told by several writers and historians.
It is presumed that he died far from his home in Vicenza, since no grave or tomb was never found.
We know for sure that by the end of August 1525 no trace of Antonio Pigafetta was ever found.
An old family tradition, handed down from father to son, from the Pigafetta family of Agugliaro, states that Antonio died in the Aegean Sea during a naval battle between the Venetians and the Turks.
